Artist Naming Guidelines

  1. Artist Name and location are required fields. Websites and description are optional, but it's highly recommended to add them.
  2. Remember to use correct capitalization - The First Letter Of Every Word Is Capitalized.

Release Naming Guidelines

  1. You must add all of the artists to this release that are associated on it - regardless if it's just one artist, or a compilation with 20. All of them need to be added. If any artists are on this release that are not in the database already, it is up to you to add them. You can switch to the "Add Artist" tab and quickly add artists without losing your progress on the "Add Release" tab.
  2. To add artists to a release, start typing their name in the first Artists: box and select their name from the autocomplete list. If you need to add multiple artists, click the green + button to add more input boxes.
  3. For "split" releases, enter the title as "Split" (without quotes) and then add the artists to the database UNLESS the release has an official title.
  4. There is no need to add such things as 'LP,' 'EP,' or '7"' at the end of the title, unless it is part of the actual release name. This information will show up on the pressing info page.
  5. For 'self titled' releases (where the title of the release is the same as the band) enter in the band name as the title.
  6. Remember to use correct capitalization - The First Letter Of Every Word Is Capitalized.
